About the event

The superb Burghley Game & Country Fair, held over the Late May Bank Holiday at Burghley House, is in its 6th year now. A fabulously entertaining show, at one of the UK's most beautiful stately homes!


Two action - packed arenas have a full programme of displays with dare-devil stunts, fast and furious scurry racing, cheeky sheepdog and duck displays, bigger Birds of Prey, daring dog displays and even a grand national steeplechase.


The ever popular Dogzone returns with Lurcher racing and showing, a Multiscurry Challenge, Mullenscote Gundog Clinic and Chase the Bunny (pure fun). Family dogs can have a bit of fun with the Fun Dog Show too.


The Falconry Village has native and some more exotic Birds of Prey, all waiting for the chance to stretch their wings and fly! The Craft Village comes complete with a working demonstration, beautiful contemporary and traditional arts and crafts. Food Glorious Food is perfect for food lovers. Chefs cook up some tasty delights and regional producers sell delicous food and drink.


The show's arenas are encompassed by an array of country and craft stalls, selling everything from country clothing and accessories to handcrafted art and regional food and drink.


Children can throw a pot and make a face or 'Learn How To' fish with the Angling Trust, handle a gundog and get close to a hawk. 


If that sounds a little too exhausting, relax in the food courts around the show. Enjoy British classics and tasty treats.
